As a child I always wanted to be a nurse but being a caregiver gives me the opportunity to help others that are in need as well. Being a caregiver for me is very self rewarding. I get joy out of providing joy to others, I love what I do. As a caregiver you are the eyes and ears for those that can not do for themselves and I pride myself on caring for my client. I would want someone to care for me and/or my grandparents with the up most respect and compassion. I am proud to say that I stopped working with a client due to them being hospitalized and declined the opportunity to return when they were released. The clients daughter contacted me directly with a request for me to care for her mother again. Her mother was not allowing other aids to care for her and often requested them to leave her home.This was one of my most proudest moments, to know that I had such an impact on that family that they went above and beyond to contact me to work with them. I thrive off of working with positive productive individuals. I am very much a team player even when I am on a solo case. Being family orientated is the key to most of the success in my life. Treat People Like You Want to be Treated.
